On this week’s Pixels & Ink Podcast: Brendan, Chris, Dayna, and Jordan sit down to talk about the reveal of Kingdom Hearts’ Sora for Super Smash Bros Ultimate—a long requested character who is definitely and interesting inclusion, but seems a bit lacking without any Disney connection. Jordan talks a bit about Smash Bros transcending itself and Kingdom Hearts as a bit of a messy game.
Afterwards the gang talks a bit about some of the Marvel and DC announcements and rumours, as well as the colossal Twitch leak and Facebook shutdown. Brendan talks a little about Dune, Chris talks a bit about Stranger of Paradise: A Final Fantasy Origin; Dayna talks a bit about Alchemic Cutie, and Jordan talks about Death’s Gambit.
